Colours

The results of several evenings of spinning and dyeing . . .  my very own naturally dyed embroidery thread!  I’m going to be selling these at the next SCA event I go to, and if that goes well then possibly opening up a shop on Etsy as well.

Embroidery ThreadFrom left to right, that’s indigo, indigo/madder, madder, weld, weld/indigo.  Some are wool and some are silk, it’s a bit hard to tell on a tiny picture which is which.

On another happy note, the woad is still alive!  Stan is back from the brink, Claire is looking lovely, and Frank is about to take over the world.

Even Junior, who I had given up on long ago, has decided to start growing.
